Feel free to pin photo's from this blog...I'm not one of those blogger's that will flip out and go on a rant about you "stealing" my photo's because you liked it enough to share it, lol. I am not a "professional decorator, cook, gardener" or "professional" anything else....I BLOG FOR FUN. Nope....not one of the perfect blogger's here. My house is not perfect, and you will never be led to believe it is. I simply cannot offer you "how-to's", nor will I leave comment's on your blog offering decorating advice...sorry. If you are one of the "professional blogger's" as I refer to so many of them these days, I simply am not interested in your invite to your linky parties...with YOUR strict instructions to follow YOUR rules, lol, in order to increase YOUR traffic. If your not here for enjoyment, then this simply isn't the blog for you.

Pear butter, and more fall goodies at the farm

I have stayed inside the house with all of the windows closed up today because of the heat, so I have managed to get some more fall decor put together.  Here are a few teasers...

It has really "cozied" up the house.

I will show the whole picture later......I'm just teasing until I get finished.

How can a girl have fall without a rooster?? More of that later also.

Look what dear sweet hubby brought home for me this time... yes...three five gallon buckets of fall pears. Actually he was expecting pair preserves, but we still have plenty left over from the last five years! Sooooo, off I went to find something to do with all of these lovely pears (besides eat them raw, which I have done also).

I ended up with pear butter.  This just screams fall to me, and it is absolutely divine! After hubby tasted the first batch, he was all for more pear butter instead of preserves.

This is mostly for my benefit, because I did not follow one recipe, or write anything down.  I combined several that I liked, and I will never remember this next fall when I want to make this again. Since I never measure anything, all I will have to do is look at this post and know what I added......oh, and literally cups and cups of brown sugar for that caramel taste.....that is the key!

One batch (12-15 pears) doesn't make much after it is cooked down (I used the crock pot) then pureed, and then cooked down for an hour or so on the stove top. I used the little 4 oz jelly jars for one batch.  I love to fix little baskets of goodies at Christmas time, and I think these will fit in quite well.

When I went to dump the pair peelings at the compost area, look what I happened upon. I knew hubby had planted the fall garden, but I had no idea it was this far along. Guess what's for supper at my house???


Fall at the farm.......in the past

I'm not quite ready to reveal our fall farm decor just yet, so I thought I would share some of the old decor that I have used on the farm in the past. Oh, did I mention it is so hot here in Mississippi that you can hardly breath, so it is not feeling much like fall. 

 Some of you may remember Farmer and Mrs. P from last year?? They were dressed in their finest for this photo, surrounded by mums and pumpkins. Farmer P doesn't really care about all of this, but this is Mrs. P's  favorite time of year, and she usually goes all out.

Mrs. P had the "less is more" attitude last year, but things will be quite different this year. She is not quite finished decorating, but she has already had folks stopping and taking pictures, and one lady asked her just today if she could dress all of her kiddo's and bring them over for a picture on the porch. Of coarse that tickled Mrs. P. 

Ya'll know there will be roo's in most all of the fall decor, well, probably all of the decor that Mrs. P does. 

Roo's inside and out!

The mantle is quite different this year....you'll see soon enough. 

Just a closer up of the mantle. 

Ok, so this is not exactly a fall photo, but isn't she just a doll??

Oh, and do ya'll remember this from year before last, I think it was a southern living recipe?? Maybe a cream cheese apple bundt cake with praline icing?? I'll betcha there may be one at the farm this year because ya'll know how Mrs. P just loves to cook!

Looking forward to getting back into the swing of blogging and visiting now that summer is almost over with. Can't wait to see everyone's fall decor.
